About Judy Bass
Colleges Specifically for LD Students
Definition of a learning disability: “An LD is anything that effects a student’s ability to learn in the traditional way.”
“It is very important for students to visit the colleges they are considering, including the learning center or office of disability services.”
“In most cases it will be easier to find accommodation with a college than a high school.”
